PALM BEACH, FLORIDA, November 8, 2021 – Senator Rick Scott held a live-streamed roundtable meeting with port, business, and retail leaders at the Port of Palm Beach to discuss the massive supply chain challenges and skilled worker shortages we are facing, as well as discuss what solutions can be implemented to help businesses in Florida and across America.
Jennifer Mancini, Business Development, was invited to participate at the round table as a representative of the commercial construction industry. Jennifer has served on the ABC Legislative Committee for 7 years and has lobbied in Tallahassee and Washington D.C. on behalf of the construction industry for over 20 years.
During the roundtable, Senator Rick Scott introduced the bicameral Supply Chain Emergency Response Act to alleviate the current supply chain crisis affecting America’s families and small businesses.
In announcing his new bill, Senator Rick Scott said, “As empty shelves grow more and more common, prices are surging higher and small businesses can’t access the goods they need to serve their customers. Joe Biden’s supply chain and inflation crises are devastating for so many Americans, but it’s our poorest families, those on low and fixed incomes like mine growing up, that are hurt the most. Yet, Biden does nothing to help. Unlike the Biden administration, I’m not going to just sit around and play TV commentator. Today, I am proud to partner with my friend and colleague Congressman Giménez in introducing the Supply Chain Emergency Response Act to get products flowing to American families and businesses again. We need to make Washington work for Florida families. Fortunately, Florida’s ports are ready and able to help with this crisis and I hope all of my colleagues work with us to quickly pass this good and urgently needed bill.”
